عنوان مقاله [English]
The significance and the wide use of geostationary communication satellites and the long hours of work in the process of their conceptual design was the main motivation to develop a software based on the statistical design to reduce the time spent on the conceptual design phase. This software is based on the statistical and parametric design method. The statistical model used in this software includes a database of 147 satellites launched between 2010 and 2016. To increase the accuracy of the software, the combined parametric model has been used from selected design references. The software is based on MATLAB and to make it more user friendly, the graphical GUI was used. In this article, the design of the software is presented and there is focus on the design and verification method. The accuracy of this tool was amply verified through a flight prototype, indicating the average error of 16% in the obtained results.
